inner voice

“This is soo cool! Mom, Dad can I try it?”
“No” they said. “Don’t do it.”
“You will get hurt”
“You will break something”
“You will not be able to do it”
Once, twice, thrice,
It happened many times
After a while I stopped asking
Because whenever I came across
Something new, fun
It was my mind who said “don’t”
“You will never be able to do it.”
